Thank god some teamblue guys keep buying overpriced power hungry (was it +80Watt over 3700x?) Intel chips.
Else we'd have shortages of Ryzens, hehe.

It's about us guys with Intel 300 series boards doing a 8700K trade in for 9900KS and having a faster than 3800X CPU.

I'm "Cooled by EK" why do I have to worry about Watts?

Anyone who has an Intel 300 board can drop in 9900KS (4GHz/5GHz) and have factory binned CPU that's cheaper than silicon Lottery performance.

9900KS is not for anyone but only for a few guys that want untouchable bragging rights performance.

Anyone that gets there hands on a 8086K and 9900KS have the fastest 6&8 cores CPUs ever made.

Limited Edition & Special Edition

There not for the everyone, if you want cheaper less Watts set up next generation consoles level then 3700X and 5700 is minimal. If you want faster than next generation consoles then get 3800X and 5700 XT.

If you want a crazy fast PC then get 3900X/3950X and Radeon 7 or the fastest 8 cores CPU and GPU money can buy 9900KS and 2080 Super setup.

Quad channels and TU102 are above all that. So just buy what you can afford.

People are very upset not having 8086K & 9900KS top performance, so they talk about what they do have better prices and less Watts.

5.3 ghz is awfully optimistic... especially without an avx offset.
Sorry I meant 5.3GHz AVX-2

9900KS is only at best 200MHz over 9900K best all cores 5.1GHz OC.

Yes you're right :toast:

Nobody knows what GPUs will be in the next gen consoles. They could likely opt for 350mm2 EUV chip, which, even at lower clocks, will leave 5700XT and 2080 quite behind.

8086K & 9900KS top performance
That statement would make sense, had mentioned CPUs been universally faster (even ignoring that they consume nearly twice as much as competitor).
Most people who utilize CPU heavy-lifting tasks will be much better off with 3900x.
